Abstract Analyses being conducted to support the rule-making for Section 403 of Title IV of the Toxic Substances and Control Act require information on environmental-lead levels in the national housing stock. The primary source of national environmental-lead levels is the HUD National Survey; however, an issue regarding the quality of dust-lead concentrations for dust samples collected in the HUD National Survey was raised. Only the weight of dust collected in the vacuum cassette was measured; rather than also measuring the amount of dust remaining on the vacuum filter. Dust-lead concentrations were calculated as the total lead found in the tapped-out dust and residual dust on the filter divided by the weight of the tapped-out dust. The dust-lead concentration will be biased if the tapped-out weight underestimates the total dust weight of the sample. The objective of this study was to assess the potential bias and define a way to adjust for it. Laboratory experiments were conducted to generate a database for understanding and addressing the bias, and a regression model developed for correcting the bias was fitted to the laboratory data. Dust-lead concentrations reported in the HUD National Survey were then adjusted using correction factors predicted by the regression model.
